Troy Newman Speaks on Behalf of Aborted Babies in MSNBC Documentary on Tiller Murder

Wichita, KS – MSNBC will air a documentary about the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller on Monday evening, October 25, 2010. Producers of the documentary heavily relied on Operation Rescue files and interviewed Operation Rescue President Troy Newman for the program.

“We completely understand the liberal bent of MSNBC and expect it to be heavily slanted toward the pro-abortion position. We were concerned with the involvement of talk show host Rachel Maddow, who is a radical abortion apologist who has grossly mischaracterized Operation Rescue and members of our staff on her nightly program. Never the less, we felt it was necessary to participate for several reasons,” said Newman.

The producers of the documentary wanted to tell two stories, that of the “saintly” George Tiller and that of Scott Roeder the “devil.”

“We agreed to do the show — even though we knew they would vilify us — because we had a third story to tell, and that is the story of the tens of thousands of innocent babies killed by abortion during Tiller’s long and checkered abortion career,” said Newman. “It remains to be seen whether or not MSNBC allows that story to be told, but we hope they keep their word to do so.”

MSNBC agreed to show images of aborted babies during the program.

Over a seven-year period, Operation Rescue engaged in an effort to expose Tiller’s horrific late-term abortion business and convince authorities close his abortion clinic for good. OR’s campaign publicized a shocking number of botched abortions requiring emergency hospitalization, discovered and publicized the death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert from a botched third-trimester abortion, and helped to convene two grand juries. Operation Rescue cooperated with the Attorney General’s office, which eventually prosecuted Tiller for committing illegal late-term abortions. While the criminal prosecution was unsuccessful, the attention set the stage for a disciplinary petition against Tiller’s license that was based on a complaint filed by Operation Rescue.

The following are just a few results of Operation Rescue’s seven years of work in Wichita, Kansas:

  • The number of late-term abortions dropped 54% in Kansas (based on stats from KDH&E)
  • A second abortion clinic, Central Women’s Services, was bought and closed by OR and now serves as our national headquarters.
  • Kansas State Board of Healing Arts discipline of Tiller on eleven causes of action was a certainty. (In fact, the KSBHA is now in the process of disciplining Tiller associate Ann Kristin Neuhaus on eleven very similar counts based again on Operation Rescue’s complaint.)
  • Tiller had shut down his political action committee, ProKanDo, once the largest and most influential PAC in the state.
  • Tiller had announced his retirement to his office staff just two weeks before his murder.
  • But before the KSBHA had an opportunity to act, Tiller was murdered by a lone gunman in a brutal act that Operation Rescue was among the first to denounce.

    In fact, Operation Rescue and its staff have a long history of peaceful activism and good working relationships with law enforcement agencies.

    “We fully expect to be vilified in the MSNBC Tiller documentary, but the truth of the matter is that Operation Rescue worked for seven years within the law and with governmental oversight agencies, law enforcement, and legislators to expose what we believed was criminal activity at Tiller’s late-term abortion clinic and bring him to justice. In the process, the nation became more aware of the tragic nature of late-term abortions and abuses within the abortion industry. Working with other groups, hundreds of babies were spared from abortion by tireless sidewalk counselors, including OR staffers, who never lost sight of the plight of the pre-born nor diminished in desire to save innocent lives. It is because of our combined work that Wichita today remains abortion-free and a safe haven for women and their pre-born babies.”

    The MSNBC documentary is scheduled to air October 25, 2010, at 9:00 pm Eastern time. Check your local listings for time and channel in your area.

    Massachusetts Abortionist Sentenced to Jail for Abortion Death

    Barnstable, MA – Abortionist Rapin Osathanondh, 67, was sentenced to six months in jail today after pleading guilty yesterday to one count of manslaughter in the 2007 abortion-related death of 22-year old Laura Hope Smith.

    Osathanondh will serve three months in a county jail after which he will likely be paroled. He must then serve nine months under home confinement with an electronic monitoring device, and three years of probation. In addition, Osathanondh is barred from practicing medicine and teaching, according to a plea agreement that was reached after a day of in-court negotiations.

    Also settled was the civil suit filed by Smith’s mother, Eileen Smith. Osathanondh agreed to pay the family a substantial sum of money as a punitive measure.

    “Today, justice was done,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who helped advise Eileen Smith after her daughter’s death and encouraged her to file complaints with the medical board and prosecutors. “Our condolences and prayers continue to be with the Smith family, who showed such an amazing strength of faith and courage throughout this ordeal.”

    “This conviction is an object lesson to prosecutors across the nation that abortionists can and should be held criminally accountable to the law for the sake of justice and public safety. There are abortionists out there right now who are endangering the lives of women who should be joining Osathanondh in jail. We hope today’s sentencing will encourage prosecutors to file criminal charges against abortionists who are breaking the law. Leaving these kinds of cases to the medical boards and civil courts is simply not good enough.”

    Osathanondh admitted in court to behaving in a wanton and reckless manner that endangered Smith’s life. He failed to properly monitor Smith while under anesthesia and did not call for emergency assistance in a timely manner when she suffered complications. He was also found to have lied to cover up his negligence by claiming he administered emergency care that was never done.

    “Osathanondh lawyers need to stop saying that he gave Laura ‘good care’ because he has now admitted in court that he did not, and she died as a result. It doesn’t get any worse than that,” said Newman.

    Earlier, Osathanondh surrendered his medical license and closed his two abortion offices. A sign from his Hyannis office where Laura died now hangs as a memento at Operation Rescue’s national headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.

    ‘This is what happens in China. Girls are taken kicking and screaming’

    If you don’t think that death panels exist, or think they won’t exist under Obamacare, this is the article for you. Forced abortions in the United States? Yes they are happening, and without due vigilance and public outcry, this will only get worse. Thanks to, this abortion abuse is being exposed. -OR Staff

    Girl’s ‘forced’ abortion blamed on government ‘death panel’
    ‘This is what happens in China. Girls are taken kicking and screaming’

    A longtime veteran of the battle against abortion in the United States says the case of a Philadelphia teen who reportedly was coerced into a late-term abortion by a social services agency can be blamed on government’s so-called “death panels.”

    The issue of “death panels” came up during debate over the Democrats’ health-care reform law. Critics said the plan, signed into law in March, included government boards that would approve or refuse certain medical services for some patients.

    “Obamacare” supporters denied that such panels existed or would exist, but Troy Newman, president of the pro-life Operation Rescue organization, said the Philadelphia case is evidence they already exist and are operating.

    The Philadelphia Daily News apparently was the first to document the case in which social workers took a teen for an abortion even though the teen had been looking forward to having the little boy and even had picked out a name.

    Further, the teen’s mother had opposed the abortion, as had the foster mother with whom the teen was staying. The newspaper even reported that one social worker, Marisol Rivera, who said she didn’t want to take the teen for an abortion, later was dismissed by the social services agency.

    “This is what happens in China,” Newman told WND. “Girls are taken from their homes, kicking and screaming, thrown in a van, taken to abortionists and they undergo a forced abortion.”

    He said it’s also not rare in the U.S., citing cases he has witnessed in which girls and women under direct supervision of various governmental agencies, from detention centers to foster care settings, were delivered to abortionists.

    “It’s something we’ve been following for years. We’ve seen forced abortions in prison settings. We’ve seen these women in chains brought to abortionists. We’ve seen foster care parents, and the whole system, force teens into abortion,” he said.

    Newman Organizing Opposition To Late-Term Abortions In Albuquerque

    Albuquerque, NM – Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman is in Albuquerque, New Mexico, today meeting with pro-life leaders, including clergy, activists, and politicians. The purpose of the meetings is to strategize about future efforts to close the late-term abortion business set up here after the largest late-term abortion clinic in the nation closed last year in Wichita, Kansas.

    The Albuquerque clinic is owned by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd, who famously brags about conducting illegal abortions prior to Roe v. Wade. Boyd has recently hired two late-term abortionists, Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson, who were formerly employed by the nation’s largest late-term abortionist, George Tiller, prior to his death.

    “There is an effort to try to recreate Tiller’s late-term abortion business here in New Mexico, and we fully intend to oppose it,” said Newman. “Operation Rescue will continue to work through all peaceful and legal means to bring an end to barbaric late-term abortions on viable babies. We plan to work with the wonderful pro-life community here, which is already taking steps to embed a regular presence outside Boyd’s abortion mill.”

    Just after being contacted by Operation Rescue, Rev. Stephen Imbarrato, president of Project Defending Life in Albuquerque, led a group of activists and sidewalk counselors in prayer and outreach outside Boyd’s Southwestern Women’s Options abortion clinic. He reported that two of the first four patients they spoke to that day changed their minds about abortion and made decisions to keep their babies.

    Newman reports that meetings in Albuquerque thus far have been very encouraging.

    “The people here fully understand the implications of Boyd’s late-term abortion business, and how this could make their community the new Abortion Capital, drawing women from every state and abroad for dangerous late-term abortions that are either not available or are illegal elsewhere,” said Newman.

    Abortion laws are particularly lax in New Mexico, more so than in Boyd’s home state of Texas, or in Kansas where late-term abortions have now ceased. The lack of abortion restrictions has made New Mexico an attractive haven for late-term abortionists who seek to avoid accountability to the law.

    “We will do all that we can to provide support and guidance to the local pro-life community in Albuquerque,” said Newman. “We look forward to a fruitful partnership with them as we work together to protect innocent babies from a brutal death by abortion.”
